Yes I know I should remove the fat ball, and it's not as though I couldn't do it, but somehow that always feels like cheating!

Taken at a local bird feeding station I visit regulary, this little fella kept coming down for a munch on the fat ball I'd placed.....I'm actually surprised I got anything yesterday seeing as the light was so bad. But seeing as this was shot at ISO1600 I thought it worth keeping and showing off.

It was the first time I'd been out on a session for ages yesterday, so it was still worth getting out there despite the light. I've a few more to sort out and process, so hopefully I'll post these shots over the next few days. Regards to everyone that knows us....Ade

This is good work. A bird feeding station -- that's a good idea. I should set something like that up.

Great Nutty capture and detail.
Have to mention the fat ball about the green mesh, they are so dangerous, found many a bird caught up in them

Good quality image,
it's best not to remove anything afterwards, but arrange the "set"
so there's little chance of catching anything unwanted in the frame Smile

Hello Ade
I emailed you regarding purchasing A Sigma 50-550mm lens. I have had some pretty good results with it. I love your shot especially when it was taken at 1600 ISO. You certainly have the bragging rights on this one.
